Moxy Creative created this poster showing iconic eyewear and it perfectly demonstrates how eyewear, whether it be sun or sight, can totally transform who you are and become part of your “look”. Take the images below for example, it’s just a pair of glasses, except we know it as Yves Saint Laurent, and you never see Karl Lagerfeld without his trademark frames.
Just like Elton John became an icon thanks to his glasses, you can too thanks to Fashjon & ClearlyContacts.ca. Continue reading

I am a big fan of Interview Magazine and love reading their interviews, especially with Fashion people. This interview however is the crème de la crème; Karl Lagerfeld interviews Carine Roitfeld! Karl Lagerfeld took time from his crazy schedule and fabulous life to be the photographer for the article as well. Here are some highlights from the interview but be sure to check out the full thing here. Click here for excerpts of the Interview
New Lagerfeld Designed Diet Coke Bottles
According to the Telegraph, Coca Cola released images of the new Karl Lagerfeld designed Diet Coke bottles today. I personally get excited about all things Lagerfeld; not just his designs but this includes his teddy bear and figurine.The bottles won’t be available to Collectors and Diet Coke enthusiasts until summer but I imagine they will fly off shelves, just like all the other stuff the Kaiser has graced with his golden touch and genius mind. The pony-tailed silhouette of the Kaiser is still present (albeit a smaller version) and now the bottles feature three distinct patterns, including stripes and stars. I personally prefer the more classic look of last years bottles (see below). What do you think, do you like the new bottles?

Fashions fade, style is eternal
-Yves Saint Laurent
I figured this quote was the best way to start off this post (and this blog). There are many men (and women) of style in our world today but it is a dwindling population. Buying a Dolce and Gabbana jackets makes you no more fashionable then buying a Walmart jacket; it is how you wear it, how you feel wearing it and the style in which you wear it.
This blog won’t be about what I wear or what I see people wearing on the street, it won’t be about Haute Couture or Avant Garde fashion. This blog is about Style, Fashion & Shiny things; what I see, what I like, what attracts me and what exciting.
I think men should be more stylish; I long for the slim cut suits, skinny ties and hats of 60s fashion. I think the world needs more proper “gentlemen”.
To end my first post, I am going to leave you with some pictures of my style icons, my men of style.
